Baby's crossing dreamland's border, to a land all free from guile,
Wafted by an angel's order comes her good-night in a smile:
Blithely dream my priceless treasure, dream that you may ne'er partake
E'er one drop of sorrow's measure, never suffer one heartache
Gayly roam o'er dream's domain, and celestial guides
Protect thee from all earthly bane, see that no ill, no ill betides.
Hushaby, rock a by. lullaby, love, baby is playing with angels above.
Lullaby, hushaby, rock-aby rest, of all earthly blessings baby is best.
Baby's safe o'er dreamland's border, where all may idealize,
While the mother prays the Lord her baby's dreams to realize,
Calmly slumber, precious token of kind heaven's love and grace,
Mamma's vigils still unbroken, sleep and dream in her embrace.- Cho.
